Transcript Great boats I,using nt the harbor's mouth . . . ('.rent shij —Photo by David Strickler putting out to sen. lute tightness ol American principles. One generation of Americans faltered in failh and began to introduce the worn-out quackeries nf Old World collectivism into the American system. And. as we lose nut" felillt. we lose mil' sin iiL'tll. Put today the winds of freedom are rising, and thev will sweep across llii- land as in a time gone by when llicy inspired fearless men In write ;i flaming declaration nf eternal principles "When in the course of human events... writing il mil fur all the world In see-. Christianity i-. nf course, lhe Hope nl lhe W orld. I!ul politically speaking. .America is lhe hist, best hope fur peace and freedom nn earth—the only hope. If American power should disintegrate, the whole human race would s,eun he enveloped in a Ing ol terror so demoralizing, sn terrible, that those who survived would envy those who eliel nut. We are told that lhe world is sick eiml nicds our help: bul wc cannot cure the patient hv gelling in bed with him. We mighl give him some hope of re covery if we- could show him evidence nf our own vigorous health and lull him how lo achieve- that health himself. A living man Would benefil mure by learning of a cure for his ailment ihetn l.v hav ing his hospital bills paid. The old American formula is lhe only known, proven cure fnr ihe economic ills of human sueie'tv. If the bankrupt nations uf the- world do not wanl lo use theit cure, wc cannol cram it down their ihrneiis. high-pressure them into taking il. .a buy their acceptance of it. Ami we musl not we must nol destroy our own system in vain efforts to shore up theirs. W e Americans are proud etnd should he proud of our famed standard nf liv ing; but what wc musl nol forgcl nor let other people forget is that lhe material things ihe bathtubs, ihe automobiles and central healing, the television sets—arc merely by-products nf the Vmerican svslem. Wc do nul helve these material things because we- ein- greedier eiml mure dollar-grasping eiml mute materialistic than others are. We have' them because a group nf men who gave us our formula fnr successful living realized lhal if man is free anil independent. the material things will accrue to him and flow into his society as a matter of course. The Founding Fathers provided for the unbelievable prosperity of America when they gave us a workable means of preserving personal freedom. If lhe real and fascinating American story were lold and understood throughout the world, tyranny everywhere mighl topple in el Scramble nf peoples to follow the American example. All around us. frantic men arc searching fur new concepts and fresh approaches lu achieve universal peace etnd harmony. America needs no new discoveries in the realm of political ideas, ol the launching of any new social experiments. Our need nnw is fnr rediscovery ami renewed understanding of the line and tried principle of Americanism. In the striking record of our own country, the precious gem nf human understanding lies buried. While civilization exhausts ilself in fruitless efforts fur peace, it would be tragic indeed if die one simple-, proven, and effective formula for thc peace and happiness of humeinilv were' permitted In lie unheeded in lln' dusty, unturned pages of American history. The subtle secrel of 1776 might save our fearful civilization today. From the thundering power uf Niagara In lln' silent, sun-baked beauty of FI Centro; from I'ugei Sound In lhe Florida Keys America, mighty and magnificent, is teeming with hope and youth and pruni- ise. And so it will always be if wc do nol remove the ancient landmarks which our fathers have sel. Yes, America is a fabulous country! the only fabulous country.
